Lawsuit Imminent in Eva Longoria Car Crash

10/25/2010 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The guy whose car got tangled up with Eva Longoria's thinks the "Desperate Housewives" star is solely to blame for their smash-up -- and he's getting ready to sue.

Attorney Sanjay Sobti tells TMZ he's been retained by Roman Gasparyan (aka the other driver) claiming his client was stopped in the middle lane on Hollywood Blvd., waiting to turn.

Sobti says Longoria made a sudden turn in the middle lane and smashed into Gasparyan, crossing the median and nearly hitting another driver. Sobti claims an eye witnesses says Longoria's eyes "were red and bloodshot."

He says his client suffered back and neck pain, severe headaches, anxiety and blood pressure complications. Sobti says he'll file a civil suit this week.

But our law enforcement sources tell a radically different story ... that the other driver stopped suddenly and Eva was unable to avoid impact.

A rep for Longoria had no comment.

They are Indians, not Mexicans. Do you see the name Gonzalez anywhere in this article?

Who'sThat    

this guy saw that it was Longoria in the other car and decided to stop suddenly to make some money...just b/c she hit him does not necessarily mean she was following too close. i was in a similar type accident but it involved 3 cars and the car that caused the accident still had to pay! so if Longoria is telling the truth and this guy caused the accident by the sudden stop, then he is at fault!

TMZ needs to do something about these ads in the comments. This is getting out of control.

who cares...thousands of drivers get into car accidents...is this even a news? Anyways...this seems like a he said she said matter, so take it to court and let the judge figure it out...highly doubt it will go as far as trial but if no parties will admit to fault..."file a suit"!

Care and control, Eva's still guilty. If she was travelling that closely it's still her fault.

Just another Ahole trying to get something for nothing. wasting time and money of the courts with a non case. Of course he's hoping for a settlement. total BS.

Gasparyan is an armenian name. They'll do anything for a buck, especially if it''s shady.
